UK Sony Xperia Z2 Official Release Delayed until May
As you probably remember, Sony introduced its Xperia Z2 back in the MWC in February, but the company ran out of stock soon after that. During shortage Sony stated that there won’t be any type of delay, but things did not turned out as initially planned and the company had to admit that that official UK launch will be indeed delayed until May. To be more precise, the official UK release date for the Sony Xperia Z2 handset will be May 1, but some third-party retailers are already promising to ship the device from April 14 to all of you who pre-order the handset online.
Xperia Z2 Deals from most popular Mobile Retailers
So, popular mobile retailers in the UK such as Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U have officially revealed that they will start shipping the new Xperia Z2 sooner than Sony had promised, but one thing is for sure: the initial stock will go out to pre-orders only. Moreover, Vodafone has also confirmed to ship the device a little sooner as well, while EE has revealed that it expects stock of the Xperia Z2 no later than this April 11.
And don’t leave aside that these carriers wanted to make their offer even more tempting, so in case of pre-ordering an Xperia Z2 with a contract from Carphone Warehouse, you’ll also receive a £100 cashback. Phones4U has another deal which sounds even better: the carier also gets you a Sony SRS-BTX300 wireless speaker which is normally priced at £119, as well as £80 worth of music, games and movies, with the promise that you’ll have the chance to download the new Michael Jackson album via the Xperia Lounge app starting May 13. And finally, Clove UK is having the Xperia Z2 on pre-order for £540 as we are speaking, also offering a free wireless speaker, some digital content normally priced at £80, as well as free Sony MDR-NC31EM noise-cancelling headphones, but the first stock will arrive in May as well.
